ACKNOWLEDGMENT 



The acreage, production, and value statistics in this bulletin are official State and USDA 
estimates prepared by the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. The county and area detail 
were made possible by the participation of the Department of Food and Resource Economics, University 
of Florida, in the estimating program. The Bureau of State Markets, Florida Department of Agricul- 
ture, and the County Extension Agents, University of Florida, Cooperative Extension Service, were 
also very helpful in supplying area and county information. Shipment statistics were provided by the 
Market News sections of the Florida Department of Agriculture and the USDA Agricultural Marketing 
Service. 

Grower organizations have provided valuable assistance and data throughout the season. These 
groups Include the Florida Celery Committee, Florida Tomato Committee, Florida Sweet Corn Exchange, 
South Florida Vegetable Exchange, Zellwood Sweet Corn Exchange, and North Florida Growers Exchange. 
Sales agencies and transportation firms provided the inputs necessary to complete the statistical 
story. 

Foremost, the growers, shippers, and processors volunteered most of the basic data used in 
developing these official statistics. The public spirited cooperation of these individuals and 
groups 1s appreciated. 

Fleldmen James Spires, Immokalee; Charles Robertson, Homestead; Wallace Jacobs, North Palm 
Beach; and Larry Amlong of Palmetto collected much of the basic acreage, production , and price 
statistics in this bulletin. This report was assembled under the direction of Jerry Campbell, Ron 
Shannon, and Carl A. Ouzts of the Florida Crop and Livestock Reporting Service and Buck Buchanan, 
Bureau of Market News. The authors also wish to thank Becky Altman, Brenda Craft, Ray Crickenberger, 
Marcelo D1az, Kitty Hi ldreth, Tommy Scherer, Pat Todd, and others of the Florida Crop and Livestock 
Reporting Service who assisted in compiling and preparing this report

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



SEASONAL GROUPS— During the growing season, esti- 
mates were prepared for most crops on a six month season- 
al group basis. The periods are for the crop year July- 
December and January through June. The two six month 
periods were combined in this publication into a crop 
year total for all crops. Production sold or utilized is 
shown by months. 



PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which has been 
planted for harvest during the crop year. Acreage lost 
and replanted to the same crop in time for harvest 1n the 
same quarter is counted only once. Acreage harvested and 
planted again to the same crop 1s counted twice. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage partially or com- 
pletely harvested. Acreage lost before or at maturity 
through natural or economic causes is not included in the 
acreage for harvest. 



YIELD is the average production per acre of merchan- 
table quality harvested and sold or utilized. 



PRODUCTION is the quantity actually harvested and 
sold or utilized. 



TOTAL VALUE is the equivalent value of production 
sold or utilized based on the unit value. Cull age and 
other quantities not sold or utilized because of natural 
or economic factors are excluded. 

OTHER COUNTIES Include harvested acreage for all 
counties for which either published data would result in 
the disclosure of individual operations or acreage totals 
for specific commodities are of minor Importance 1n the 
State. 

All shipments and unloads, rail , truck , air , and 
boat , are recorded nationally 1n 10,000 pound units each 
day. Annual releases are in 1,000 cwt. In this publica- 
tion, shipments and unloads for some commodities were 
converted to most common trading units. Rail and piggy- 
back weights and conversion factors were determined by 
several Market News Service field offices. Mixed car 
(rail) loadings by stations have been prorated by com- 
modities. 

Where possible, the national Market News Service in 
Washington, D. C. has established a single uniform weight 
per commodity to be used nationally in converting to 
weight units for the various means of transportation. 
Weights per common container used and number of units per 
rail car or truck may be obtained by writing the MNS 
office in Winter Park, Florida. 



UNIT VALUE for fresh market sales is the equivalent 
price received, f.o.b. shipping point basis and encompas- 
ses all grades and sizes marketed or utilized. Included 
are packing charges, selling charges, precooling, top 
ice, or other costs which contribute to the value of the 
product at shipping point. The value per unit for quanti- 
ties sold to processors is the average value paid for 
usable quantities, on a "delivered to plant door" basis. 
This value includes transportation and other normal costs 
incident to delivery at plant door. 



PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT— The official USDA vege- 
table crop estimates are published on a weight basis. For 
this bulletin, the official estimates for most vegetable 
crops have been converted to what 1s believed to be the 
most commonly used containers. If changes in container 
weights are necessary, all data pertaining to the produc- 
tion of the commodity in question are revised to maintain 
comparability between years. The table below gives the 
net weight used per container and the number of contain- 
ers per hundredweight.

SUMMARY OF THE 1983-84 VEGETABLE SEASON 



The farm value of Florida-grown vegetables, melons, 
potatoes, and strawberries sold in the 1983-84 crop year 
totaled $1.1 billion, the same as the 1982-83 crop year. 
Acreage harvested was 3 percent above the previous year. 
Crops showing the greatest gains in harvested acres were 
carrots, green peppers, potatoes, radishes, squash, toma- 
toes, and watermelons. Crops increasing in value were 
cabbage, celery, eggplant, potatoes, and watermelons. 
Crops with lower values than the previous year were snap 
beans, carrots, sweet corn, cucumbers, escarole, lettuce, 
green peppers, radishes, squash, tomatoes, and strawber- 
ries. Except for carrots, most of the declines in value 
were due to lower season average prices. Cabbage, which 
rose $18.0 million, showed the greatest increase in 
value, followed by potatoes which increased $14.4 mil- 
lion; celery, $9.7 million and watermelons, up $3.9 mil- 
lion from a year ago. Tomatoes and green peppers showed 
the greatest declines, down $22.7 million and $14.9 mil- 
lion, respectively, from the previous year. 



Average yields for snap beans, celery, sweet corn, 
eggplant, potatoes, and watermelons increased during the 
year but yields declined for cabbage, carrots, cucumbers, 
escarole, lettuce, green peppers, radishes, squash, 
tomatoes, and strawberries. 



Season average prices for cabbage, carrots, celery, 
and eggplant were higher than a year ago. Prices for snap 
beans, sweet corn, cucumbers, escarole, lettuce, green 
peppers, potatoes, radishes, squash, tomatoes, water- 
melons, and strawberries averaged below the previous 
season. 



Land preparation, planting and transplanting were 
very active in most areas during July. Growing conditions 
were generally good over most of the farming areas in 
August. Planting activity progressed favorably with very 
few delays. The weather during September and October was 
mostly favorable with generally warm days and mild 
nights. Numerous cold fronts passed through the State in 
October and November, bringing cooler temperatures and 
varying amounts of rainfall. Some locally heavy rainfall 
along the southeast coast delayed harvest and planting. 



Temperatures were generally mild during most of 
December until a severe cold front passed through the 
State over the Christmas weekend. Nighttime lows reached 
into the teens in northern counties and 20 's in the 
southern counties. The cabbage crop in the Hastings area 
was considered nearly a total loss as practically all of 
the younger acreage was lost to the freeze. Damage to 
other crops was moderate to heavy in most southern farm- 
ing areas. Growers in Dade County experienced light to 
moderate losses as some plants were protected from the 
cold winds. Another cold front passed through on New 
Year's weekend but was not as damaging. 



Early January was characterized by numerous cold 
fronts. The southwest had light frost and below normal 
temperatures, but there was very little damage to crops. 
Temperatures were generally mild and mostly normal to 
above normal in the winter vegetable areas throughout the 
remainder of the month. There was little to no rainfall 
in most areas. 

Rainfall was generally light throughout the State 
during February. However, locally heavy showers occurred 
in the southeast and in some west Florida areas. Irriga- 
tion was very active in the drier localities. Mostly 
mild, sunny weather prevailed in the vegetable areas. 

A cold front in early March brought lower tempera- 
tures to most vegetable producing areas. Strong, cold 
winds gusting 40 to 50 miles per hour caused light to 
moderate damage to most tender crops in nearly all areas 
except Dade County. Heavy, scattered frost blanketed 
portions of central Florida and the northern Everglades. 
Little to no damage was reported on most crops, however, 
sweet corn in the Everglades suffered heavy damage. The 
remainder of the month was accompanied by ample periods 
of sunshine and moderate winds. Rainfall accumulations 
were generally light to moderate during March in most 
growing areas. 

April was fair and dry. No significant amounts of 
rainfall were reported although some locally heavy 
showers occurred in the Lake Okeechobee area. In the 
southwest, some irrigation wells went dry due to a lack 
of appreciable amounts of rainfall. Temperatures were 
variable throughout the month. Harvest was in full swing 
for some crops while others were declining seasonally. 

Weather in May continued hot and dry. Rainfall was 
spotty with many areas receiving small quantities. Con- 
stant irrigation was required to maintain soil moisture. 
Water tables continued to drop in the southwest, putting 
additional pressure on the irrigation wells. The first 
substantial rains of the spring season for many areas 
fell during the last week of May. From 2 to 12 1/2 inches 
fell between May 26 and the morning of May 29. Heaviest 
rainfall was in the Pompano area. Harvest was very active 
for some vegetables but declining for others. 

The first week in June was unusually clear, cool, 
and dry. Record low temperatures occurred during the 
weekend of June 2nd and 3rd. At midmonth, routine sunnier 
weather set in with warm, humid conditions and scattered 
afternoon, and evening showers and thunderstorms. Most 
areas received rains of 1 to 3 inches. Temperatures 
averaged near normal. Harvest was essentially complete 
for most crops in the major vegetable areas by the end of 
June. 

Most of the weather data for this summary was sup- 
plied through the National Weather Service, U.S. Depart- 
ment of Commerce, Ruskin, Florida. Information on the 
effects of weather on crops was provided by the Florida 
Crop and Livestock Reporting Service fieldmen.

SNAP BEANS 
1983-84 



Florida growers produced 4.5 minion bushels of bush 
and pole beans during the 1983-84 season for fresh and 
processing utilization, up 6 percent fran a year earlier. 
Acreage harvested for fresh and processing totaled 46,500 
acres, down 1 percent from the 47,000 acres harvested 
during the previous season. The average yield for the 
1983-84 season was 96 bushels per acre for fresh market 
and 100 bushels per acre for processing, as compared with 
90 bushels and 100 bushels, respectively, for the pre- 
vious year. 

The average f.o.b. price of $9.22 per bushel for 
fresh market was $1.38 cents lower than the previous 
year. At $4.50 per bushel, snap beans for processing are 
up $1.50 from last season. Total value, at $40.0 million, 
was 10 percent below last year. 

Bush beans are grown in all areas of Florida with 
the exception of the east central and southwest areas. 
The southeast continues to be the major producing area. 
Pole beans are grown primarily in Dade County, with small 
acreages in Gadsden and Marion counties and the west 
central area. 

Earliest fall supplies of snap beans originate from 
west Florida. The northern and west central areas, the 



Everglades and southeastern districts also provide fall 
production. The southeast 1s the sole source of supply 
during the winter. The other areas resume production in 
the spring. 

Snap bean production extended from early October 
Into mid-June. The fall crop peaked in December. Market- 
ings declined sharply in January and February after the 
Christmas of 1983 freeze. Production for the season 
peaked in March. Normally, April is the month of peak 
production. About 21 percent of the fresh marketings were 
in March. 

Variable weather influenced the 1983-84 bean crop. 
Heavy mid-October rains in the southeast washed beds and 
leached fertilizer, necessitating moderate reseeding. 
Ideal growing weather prevailed in most of December until 
a severe cold front moved through the State over the 
Christmas weekend. Plant damage was severe in the Pompano 
area. Some acreage had to be replanted. Strong, cold 
winds in early March whipped plants, burned tender 
foliage, and caused some fruit scarring. Weather during 
the spring season was generally favorable. Heavy rains 
the end of May again washed beds and leached fertilizer 
in the southeast, but most growers had completed harvest. 
Quality and yield were variable thoughout the season. 



CABBAGE 
1983-84 



Florida's cabbage growers produced 4.7 million 
crates and bags of cabbage during the 1983-84 season. 
Production at this level is 28 percent less than the 
previous year and the lowest since the 1964-65 season 
when 4.6 million crates were produced. The gross value 
was $40.7 million, a 80 percent increase over the pre- 
vious year's total of $22.7 million. The average f.o.b. 
price was $8.75 per crate or bag, up $5.23 from the $3.52 
received for the prior season's crop. The higher average 
price received accounted for the sharp increase in value. 



Total plantings were 19,000 acres, up 17 percent 
from the 16,300 acres planted during the 1982-83 season. 
However, only 11,000 acres were harvested. This was 25 
percent less than last season, primarily because of 
freeze loss. The average yield of 423 crates or bags per 
acre was down by 15 bags from the previous season's 
average. 



Cabbage was available for market in late October and 
continued through June. Production during the fall months 
was down 6 percent from the previous fall. Production 
during the winter and spring period was down 29 percent 
from the year before. The peak months were April and May 
followed by March. 



The Hastings area, which includes the three counties 
of Flagler, Putnam, and St. Johns, is the leading produc- 
ing area in the State. This area accounted for 51 percent 
of the State's production during the 1983-84 season. The 
leading cabbage producing county is St. Johns with 3,000 
acres harvested, or 27 percent of the State's total. 

Direct seeding and transplanting got underway by 
mid-September. The most active period for transplanting 
was October through December. Direct seeding in fields 
occurred between August and November. Only a small per- 
centage of the total acreage planted is seeded direct in 
fields. 

First cuttings began in late October, increasing 
slowly into December. A freeze on Christmas weekend 
brought extensive damage to the cabbage crop. Production 
dropped sharply after the first of the year and did not 
gain momentum until March. Harvest was at peak during 
April and May. Effects of the freeze lowered yield and 
production for the winter quarter. Winter production 
accounted for only 26 percent of the total production, 
down considerably from the 1982-83 winter months. Many 
growers replanted damaged fields for harvest in the 
spring. Spring production accounted for 65 percent and 
fall months 9 percent.

CARROTS 
1983-84 



Production of carrots in Florida for fresh market 
and processing utilization during the 1983-84 season 
totaled 730,000 cwt, down 34 percent from the previous 
season. Fresh use constituted 79 percent and processing 
21 percent. This compares with 80 percent fresh and 20 
percent processing the previous year. Approximately 20 
percent of the fresh carrots were mini or finger carrots 
compared with 19 percent a year earlier. The remaining 80 
percent were the regular type carrots. 

There were 10,600 acres harvested from the 12,000 
acres planted during the 1983-84 crop year. This compares 
with 10,000 acres harvested from the 10,600 acres planted 
a year earlier. Average price received for the 1983-84 
crop was $14.60 per cwt compared with $10.50 per cwt 



the previous year. Total value was $10.7 million, down 8 
percent from the $11.6 million for the 1982-83 crop year. 

The muck soils around Lake Apopka, near Zellwood, 
and in the Everglades area south of Lake Okeechobee 
provide a good medium for growth. By far the majority of 
carrots are grown in the Zellwood area. The mini or 
finger carrot movement usually begins in late October or 
early November and ends by late May. Regular size carrots 
are harvested from November through June. The young crop 
in the Zellwood area received extensive cold damage from 
the Christmas 1983 freeze. Considerable acreage had to be 
replanted for the spring season. Generally, size and qual- 
ity were good during most of the harvest period. 



CELERY 
1983-84 



Florida celery marketings of 6.2 million crates were 
harvested from 9,200 acres during the 1983-84 growing 
season. The average yield of 672 crates per acre compares 
with 666 crates the previous year. 

Prices averaged higher than the previous year and at 
$10.44 f.o.b. per crate, compared with $8.77 per crate 
during the 1982-83 season. Prices during January, Febru- 
ary and March averaged higher than the same months the 
previous year while prices during April through December 
averaged lower than the previous year. 

The Everglades, with 82 percent of the harvested 
acreage in the State, was the foremost area of production 
throughout the season. The north central area supplement- 
ed by a light supply from the Sarasota area, accounted 
for the remaining 18 percent of acreage and provided 
continuous supplies during the season. 

Plant bed preparation and seeding were underway by 
mid-June. Transplanting was underway in August and became 
active by mid-September. Plantings in the Everglades 
were winding down by the end of March and were completed 
by early April. Plantings were also complete in the north 
central area by the first week of April. Growers in the 
Sarasota area usually plant from October to March. 



Light harvest began by mid-November in the Zellwood 
and Everglades areas. Growing conditions were hot and 
humid in the summer and early fall months. Cool weather 
in November was beneficial for growth and development. 
Quality was generally good during most of the season. 
Yields and size were good and averaged about normal. 

No major cold damage occurred to the celery because 
of the Christmas 1983 freeze. The winter market was very 
favorable but prices averaged below the previous spring 
when the market was good. Prices overall averaged above 
year earlier levels. Approximately 3 percent of the crop 
was not harvested for various reasons. Growers passed 
some acreage in order to maintain good quality celery. 

Celery production was most active from December 
through May with April being the peak month. Cutting was 
completed in all areas the first week of July. 

Celery is subject to a Federal marketing order ad- 
ministered by the Florida Celery Committee. Field super- 
visors provided the basic acreage and production data. In 
cooperation with the Celery Conmittee, these data are 
assembled into weekly, monthly, and annual reports and 
published in this Annual Sumnary. 



CHINESE CABBAGE 
1983-84 



Chinese cabbage is grown primarily on the mucklands 
of the Zellwood and Everglade areas. The organic soils 
provide a very good medium for rapid growth. Harvest was 
underway by late November. Volume was below normal in 
January and February because of the severe Christmas 
1983 freeze and then peaked in March. Good supplies were 



available into May. During April and May, Zellwood was 
providing good supplies while the Everglades was winding 
down for the season. Light supplies were available into 
June. Quality was generally good during most of the 
growing season. Shipments for the season totaled 115,000 
cwt compared with 129,000 cwt a year earlier.

SWEET CORN 
1983-84 



Florida, the Nation's leading sweet corn producer 
for fresh sales, marketed 10.9 million crates during the 
1983-84 season. Production decreased 3 percent from the 
previous year. Harvested acres totaled 55,200 compared 
with 57,700 harvested the previous year. Yields averaged 
198 crates per acre, up 2 crates from the previous 
crop year. 

The season average f.o.b. price of $5.58 per crate 
was 16 cents below the $5.74 per crate average in the 
1982-83 crop season. Sweet corn ranked sixth in value of 
vegetables produced in the State and was exceeded only by 
watermelons, celery, potatoes, green peppers and toma- 
toes. 

First plantings of the season were underway in the 
Everglades and Zellwood areas in July. Seeding on the 
East Coast got underway in early October. First harvest 
began in the Zellwood area after mid-September. Cutting 
in the Everglades got underway by mid-October. Harvest 
was virtually complete in December when freezing tempera- 
tures entered the area on December 25. Harvest then 
shifted from the Everglades to the southeast coast in 
December. The Christmas freeze caused moderate to heavy 
damage to the older plantings in the Pompano area. Volume 
was reduced for 4 to 6 weeks. Acreage loss was very 
light. By mid-January Dade County began light harvest. 



A cold front in early March brought freezing temper- 
atures to the Everglades. Older corn away from Lake 
Okeechobee received heavy damage. Considerable acreage 
had to be replanted. April harvest was below normal and 
supplies did not reach a peak level until mid-May. The 
Everglades became the main source of supply in late April 
as the East Coast and Dade County were nearing the end 
for the season. Spring harvest got underway in mid-May in 
the Zellwood area. Volume declined seasonally in the 
Everglades by early June and the Zellwood area became the 
main source of supply into early July. The season was 
over by mid-July. 

A small acreage continued to provide supplemental 
supplies from Zellwood and the west central area during 
the early fall and from Sarasota in the early spring. 

Weather during the growing season was marked by 
freezes during December and March. The older crop on the 
southeast coast area had moderate to heavy losses from 
the Christmas weekend freeze. Considerable acreage loss 
occurred in the Everglades after the March freeze, neces- 
sitating much of the crop to be replanted. Yields were 
also reduced by the adverse conditions. Growing condi- 
tions after the March freeze were generally favorable. 
Quality and ear size improved as the season progressed 
into early spring. 



CUCUMBERS 
1983-84 



Florida's production of cucumbers for fresh market 
during the 1983-84 crop year was 4.6 million bushels, 
down 2 percent from the 1982-83 crop. The 16,000 acres 
planted for fresh market was up 100 acres from the pre- 
vious year. Fresh market harvested acres totaled 15,100, 
also a gain of 100 acres from a year earlier. Average 
yield per acre for fresh market, at 307 bushels, was down 
9 bushels from the previous season. Total fresh market 
production was valued at $34.0 million compared with 
$37.0 million for the 1982-83 season. The fresh market 
price for 1983-84 averaged $7.33 per bushel compared with 
$4.77 the previous year. 

Supplies in 1983-84 were generally available from 
September through June, with light marketings January 
through March. Many of the recorded shipments moving out- 
of-State January through March are from offshore and 
truck imports resold in mixed loads. 



The production of cucumbers is well distributed 
across the State. The southwest area, with 42 percent of 
the planted acreage during 1983-84, is the largest area. 
The west central area accounted for 28 percent of the 
planted acres in the State. The west, north central, and 
southeast areas provide the remaining crop. 

The crop was mostly in good to very good condition 
during the fall. A severe December freeze killed the 
remaining fall crop. Damage was heavy to young plantings. 
Considerable replanting was necessary. Strong, cold winds 
in March caused heavy plant damage to some fields. The 
spring cucumber crop in the Inmokalee area was set back 
by the adverse weather. In early April, heavy rain and 
strong winds rolled vines and scarred fruit in the Pom- 
pano area. Remaining spring weather was warm and dry. 
Yields, size, quality, and color were very good during 
the fall but variable throughout the spring season. 



5 



EGGPLANT 
1983-84 



Plantings totaled 2,300 acres, down 11 percent from 
the 1982-83 season. Yields averaged 710 bushels per acre 
compared with 666 bushels for the previous season. 
Weather was generally favorable during much of the fall, 
and crop progress was good. During late December a hard 
freeze resulted in heavy plant damage but only light 
acreage loss. Mild, sunny weather in February was favor- 
able for plant recovery but production was light because 
of earlier freeze damage. Conditions remained favorable 
for growth until strong, cold winds whipped plants, scar- 
red fruit, and burned tender leaves in early March. Crop 
condition was mostly good in the spring after plants 
recovered from the March freeze. Quality, size, and 
yields were generally good. 

Production of eggplant decreased to 1,491,000 bus- 
hels, 10 percent below last year's production. Total 
sales increased to $8.7 million compared with $8.4 million 
a year earlier. The increase was due to a higher yield 
per acre and price per bushel because harvested acres 
decreased from 1982-83. The season average price of $5.84 
per bushel is 78 cents higher than a year ago. Compared 
with a year earlier, prices for most months were higher, 
particularly for the fall and winter months. 



The distribution of marketings was generally normal. 
Harvest began in late September, reached a peak in Novem- 
ber and dropped during the winter. Harvest began to 
increase in April and reached a peak in May. Harvest was 
virtually complete by July. The southeastern area around 
Pompano accounted for 58 percent of the harvested acre- 
age. The northern and central areas combined contributed 
about 31 percent of the acreage harvested with the re- 
maining acreage in the southwest. 



Production is generally continuous throughout the 
entire crop year in the southeast and southwest. The 
crops in the western, northern, and central areas are for 
fall and spring harvest only because these areas receive 
too much freezing weather to grow eggplant during the 
winter months. 



First sales were from cuttings in the western and 
northern areas in late September. Harvest followed the 
ususal pattern and progressed southward in the fall, 
continued through the winter in the southern areas, and 
then moved back northward in the spring. 



ESCAR0LE -ENDIVE 
1983-84 



Production of escarole and endive during the 1983-84 
season totaled 2.9 million crates, the same as a year 
earlier. The 5,700 acres harvested were up 2 percent from 
the previous year. Yield per acre averaged 505 crates 
compared with 519 crates the previous year. 

Prices during the season averaged $4.92 per crate, 
compared with $5.17 a year earlier. The total value of 
sales, at $14.1 million, was 6 percent below the previous 
year. The Everglades, which had 68 percent of the har- 
vested acreage in the 1983-84 season, began seeding in 
late August. Weekly planting schedules continued through 
March. Light harvest began in late October and supplies 
were continuous into early June. The mucklands around 
Zellwood provide good volume in the late spring months. 



The small acreage grown around the Lake Placid and Sara- 
sota mucklands furnished supplemental supplies during 
much of the season. 

Sales started slowly in late October and increased 
to a good volume by November. Marketings reached peak 
levels in the December through April period. Sales were 
complete for the season by early June. 

The December freeze slowed growth and damaged the 
outer leaves of plants. The central area sustained mode- 
rate crop losses, reducing supplies for several weeks. 
Growing conditions for the remaining period were general- 
ly favorable. Quality of escarole was mostly good during 
the season.

LETTUCE 
1983-84 



Florida lettuce growers produced 2.3 million cwt 
during the 1983-84 season, down 5 percent from the pre- 
vious year. A slight increase in harvested acres along 
with a 6 percent decrease in yields resulted in the 
decline 1n production. Average yield of 179 cwt per acre 
compares with 190 cwt per acre for the previous season. 
Growers harvested 13,000 acres compared with 12,900 acres 
the previous year. The season average f.o.b. price of 
$16.84 per cwt was below the $18.83 per cwt received the 
previous year. Monthly prices through February were above 
a year earlier. Beginning in March, prices averaged less 
for the remaining winter and spring season. 

Acreage, production, and value statistics of lettuce 
in this bulletin combine the various types into a single 
estimate. The types in order of importance include ice- 
berg, romaine, Boston, bibb, and leaf. 

The Everglades muckland accounted for 86 percent of 
planted acreage and was the source of a continuous supply 
of good quality lettuce which began in early November and 
ended in late May. Outside the Everglades, Zellwood is 
the other major producing area, with Sarasota and the 
Lake Placid mucklands contributing light supplies during 
most of the season. 



Seeding was underway 1n mid-September. All areas 
were actively planting by early October. The Everglades 
and Sarasota areas had continuous plantings through 
March. 

Very light harvest of specialty types was underway 
by late October and continued light until mid-November. 
Volume gained significantly in December with growers 
cutting 1n most areas. The Everglades continued to pro- 
vide the bulk of the volume during the winter period. 
Virtually all of the iceberg type is grown in the Ever- 
glades. Supplies peaked in March and declined to the 
season's end by late May. Volume from the Zellwood area 
was light during the winter months. Moderate supplies are 
available from this area during the fall and spring 
season. 

Growing conditions in the early fall were hot and 
humid. However, growth was rapid. Freezing temperatures 
during December caused some light to moderate damage to 
outer leaves in the Everglades. Extensive damage occurred 
to young foliage in the Zellwood area. Supplies were 
reduced in both areas. Heavy volume was available state- 
wide in February and March. Quality was generally good 
throughout the season. 



PEPPERS 
1983-84 



Florida produced 9.7 million bushels of peppers 
during the 1983-84 season, an increase of 2 percent from 
the previous year. The average yield of 467 bushels per 
acre was 3 percent below the 482 bushels per acre last 
season. Harvested acreage, at 20,700 acres, was 5 percent 
more than the 19,700 acres harvested in 1982-83. 

The season average f.o.b. price of $7.75 per bushel 
was down from an average of $9.45 for the previous sea- 
son. The total value of $74.8 million was 17 percent 
below the previous year. Prices were below last year 
except for October through December. Marketings were 
light in October but increased to a good level by Decem- 
ber. Supplies decreased during the winter months but 
began an upward swing in April. The peak spring produc- 
tion occurred in May. The season then declined and was 
mostly over by the end of June. 

Total planted acreage increased 7 percent over the 
previous season. Increases in acreage for the north, west 



central, and southeast areas were partially offset by 
decreases for the north central and southwest areas. The 
southeast accounted for 38 percent of the State's total 
pepper acreage. The southwest had 33 percent; the north, 
12 percent; the west central area, 9 percent; and the 
north central area, 8 percent. 



During September, hot weather necessitated spot 
replanting to restore stands to normal. Conditions during 
the remainder of the fall season were generally favor- 
able. A hard December freeze damaged fruit and top 
foliage. Damage was very heavy on the older plants. 
Salvage operations, replanting, and planting were extreme- 
ly active after the freeze. Cold winds in early March 
produced light to moderate leafbum on some young fields 
and lowered crop conditions. Most plants recovered well 
from the adverse weather. Spring weather conditions were 
generally favorable. Yields and quality were mostly good.

POTATOES 
1983-84 



Potato production in Florida during 1984, including 
both winter and spring, totaled 7.9 million cwt, 32 
percent more than the 1983 crop. A total of 34,900 acres 
were planted for 1984 harvest. Out of this total, 33,600 
acres were harvested, about 7 percent more than the 
acreage harvested in 1983. The value of the crop was 
placed at $70.2 million, up 26 percent from the previous 
year. The increase in value of production is attributed 
to an increase in harvested acreage and yield for both 
the winter and spring crops. The season average price 
decreased slightly but the increase in total production 
compensated for the decrease in value. The price received 
for all potatoes averaged $8.90 per cwt compared with 
$9.25 in 1983. 

The average yield was 236 cwt per acre, 43 cwt above 
last year. In the Hastings area which includes Flagler, 
Putnam, and St. Johns counties, the average yield was 260 
cwt per acre, up 45 cwt frcm last year. Spring potatoes 
grown in other areas of the State had an average yield of 
200 cwt per acre. This was a sharp increase frcm the 155 
cwt average of 1983. The winter crop averaged 160 cwt, up 
20 cwt frcm the 1983 winter season. 



The "red-skined" varieties are the dominant variety 
grown for winter harvest in south Florida. Most of the 
winter crop is sold for table stock but a few are sold to 
the potato chip industry. In the Hastings area, the 
"white-skinned" varieties dominate. Most of the Hastings 
production goes to the potato chip industry, although 
fresh market or table stock sales are increasing in 
importance. 



The winter potato 
and progressed through 
was very active in Apr 
the Hastings area got 
harvest in May. Digg 
declined sharply about 
normal throughout the 
some light damage but 
very good yields. 



harvest was underway in January 

March and April. Winter harvest

SPINACH FOR PROCESSING 
1983-84 



Spinach statistics have not been published separate- in this publication. Data for 1973 and earlier are avail- 

ly for Florida in recent years to avoid disclosure of able upon request. Yields per acre and harvested acres 

individual operations. However, data for these seasons declined because of freezing temperatures during the 

have been included in the "Other Vegetable" series shown Christmas weekend of 1983. Most of the crop is grown in 

the north central area. 

SQUASH 
1983-84 



Florida's production of squash during the 1983-84 
season, at 3.0 million bushels, was 4 percent above last 
year. The total of 16,800 acres harvested increased 4 
percent from the previous year. The yield, at 177 bushels 
per acre, was down 2 bushels from last year. 

The season average price of $10.12 per bushel was 
down $1.00 frcm the 1982-83 season. Total cash receipts 
amounted to $30.2 million. Monthly prices were below a 
year earlier except for January and February. 

Florida produces acorn, butternut, yellow crookneck, 
yellow straightneck, white, and zucchini squash. Dade 
County, with 33 percent of the State's harvested acre- 
age in 1983-84, produces yellow crookneck squash almost 
exclusively. The Pompano area, in addition to being a 
major producing area, is also an important market for 
squash grown in other areas of the State. This is espec- 
ially true when local supplies reach low levels during 
the winter months. The southwest area produces a con- 
tinuous supply of most types. Central, north, and west 



Florida provide a good volume of most types during the 
fall and spring season. 



Squash is one of the few crops grown in Florida that 
is shipped every month of the year, although shipments 
during the summer are light and mostly confined to local 
markets. The 1983-84 season got off to a good start. 
Marketings increased to a fall peak in November and early 
December, then declined seasonally during the winter 
months. A severe freeze in late December killed nearly 
all plants above ground in the southwest and Pompano 
areas. Light to moderate plant damage occurred in Dade 
County. Most fields destroyed by the cold weather were 
plowed up and replanted. During March, cold temperatures 
and strong winds slowed growth and caused some foliage 
burn to both young and old crops. Weather was favorable 
during the spring quarter although there was some foliage 
burn and fruit scarring. Peak marketings for the season 
occurred in April. 



8 



RADISHES 
1983-84 



In the 1983-84 crop year, radish plantings amounted 
to 28,800 acres compared with 27,400 acres planted during 
the previous year. Acres harvested totaled 25,400, 3 
percent above the 1983-84 season. Yield per acre averaged 
207 cartons compared with 247 cartons a year earlier. The 
crop was valued at $23.0 million, down $4.9 million from 
the previous record a year earlier. The average f.o.b. 
price was $4.36 per carton, down 22 cents from the 1982- 
83 season. 

A good supply of both red and white radishes was 
available from Zellwood, Lake Placid, and the Everglades 



from October through May with a light volume going into 
June. The peak fall harvest occurred in December. The 
spring peak occurred in March. Seeding of the 1983-84 
crop was underway in the Everglades and north central 
areas in early September. Early crops progressed very 
favorably. Light harvest was underway in early October 
and became quite active in November. In December, some 
acreage was lost from a hard freeze. As a result of the 
cold weather, replanting was necessary and packout was 
reduced for several weeks. Supplemental supplies were 
available from Lake Placid and Sarasota during the year. 



STRAWBERRIES 
1983-84 



Florida strawberry growers produced 7.2 million 
flats of berries during the 1983-84 season, down 15 
percent from the previous year. Harvested acreage total- 
ing 5,100 acres decreased 6 percent from a year earlier. 
Average yield of 1,417 flats per acre decreased from the 
1,583 flats a year earlier. The f.o.b. return per flat 
for the season was $5.38, a decrease of 76 cents per flat 
from the previous season. The value of the crop was $38.8 
million, down $13.7 million from the $52.5 million re- 
ceived a year earlier. 

Laying of plastic and other field work was in full 
swing by late September in the important Hillsborough- 
Manatee area. Transplanting began by mid-October and 
increased rapidly for several weeks. Transplantings were 
virtually complete by early November. Light harvest was 



underway by mid-December in the Plant City and Dade 
areas. Shipments began in December but were prevented 
from gaining momentum by a severe freeze over the Christ- 
mas holiday weekend. Most growers used sprinklers to 
protect plants from the cold temperatures, but strong 
winds kept plants from icing over. Extensive damage was 
received by the crops in Bradford County and the 
Hillsborough-Manatee areas. Yields were greatly reduced. 
Plant recovery from the cold was slow but quality and 
harvest improved by mid-February. Market prices in Jan- 
uary were higher than a year earlier while prices in 
February through April were lower. Peak movement occurred 
in March. Harvest was underway in Bradford County by 
early April and the season was drawing to a close around 
late May. Most of the acreage in Dade County was for 
U-Pic and roadside stand operations.

TOMATOES 
1983-84 



The total value of the Florida tomato crop for fresh 
market and processing was $368 million, down 6 percent 
from the record value in the 1982-83 season. The average 
price received for fresh tomatoes was $6.83 for a 25- 
pound carton, 56 cents lower than the previous season. 
This was a contributing factor to the lower value for the 
crop. 

Total production of 55.1 million 25-pound carton 
equivalents was up 2 percent and a new production record 
for the State. Tomatoes utilized for the fresh market 
amounted to 98 percent of the total and the remaining 2 
percent went to processors. The processing segment is a 
secondary utilization, usually following the fresh market 
harvest. The Palmetto-Ruskin area accounted for 39 per- 
cent of the total production and Dade County 24 percent. 
The southwest had 24 percent, Ft. Pierce-Pompano, 9 per- 
cent and the remaining 4 percent was produced in the 
north, north central, and western areas of the State. 

The average yield for the State was 1,128 (25-pound) 
cartons, down 26 cartons from the year before. Demand for 
Florida tomatoes was good during most of the season. 
Winter production was below normal as a result of a hard 



freeze in December. The southwest area suffered heavy 
losses to plants ready for harvest. Dade County, which 
leads in winter production, had no major damage from the 
freeze. The fall shipments peaked in December with 16.0 
percent of the total production. January was the peak 
month during the winter season, accounting for 9.8 per- 
cent. January and February production was below normal 
due to the freeze in December. The spring production 
peaked in May with 23.2 percent of the total. Tomatoes 
are harvested from late October to early July. 



Tomato planting got underway in July in all areas 
except Dade County where growers started during the mid- 
dle of September. Planting made good progress during the 
fall as the weather was mostly favorable. In December, a 
freeze caused damage to tomatoes, mostly in the south- 
west. The other areas were spared any major damage. The 
Palmetto-Ruskin area experienced strong, cold winds in 
early March, causing moderate damage to their crops. Some 
fields had to be replanted. Recovery was quick after the 
adverse weather in the winter months. The tomato crops 
were in good condition by spring and production continued 
back on schedule. Harvest was complete by mid-June in the 
southernmost areas but light harvest continued through 
June into early July in the other areas. 



WATERMELONS 
1983-84 



Watermelon acreage planted during the 1983-84 season 
totaled 64,000 acres--an 8 percent increase from the 
1982-83 period. Of the total acres planted, 60,000 acres 
were harvested. This was 22 percent more than the pre- 
vious season. The crop of 10.0 million cwt was 24 percent 
above last season's production of 8.1 million cwt. The 
average yield for the State was 167 cwt per acre, up 1 
percent from the previous year. The area yields were 
rather variable, ranging from 135 cwt in the Panhandle to 
190 cwt in the south. 

The average price received was $6.20 per cwt, down 1 
dollar from last season. Prices received by growers for 
melons were highest in the south and west central area 
where the harvest begins early. The total value of the 
crop was placed at $62.1 million, a new record for the 
State. This was 7 percent above the previous record set 
last year. 

The watermelon harvest got underway by late April in 
the Irrmokalee area. The season progressed northward into 



the central area during May and the northern areas in 
June and came to an end in the western counties by mid- 
July. As usual, June was the heaviest shipping month 
during the 1983-84 season. 

Light plantings were made in the Irrmokalee area 
during late December. A Christmas freeze burned plant 
leaves and killed some plants in a few early spring 
plantings. The freeze also ended production in the same 
area from a small acreage planted in the fall. Cold, 
windy weather during early March damaged the crop in the 
southwest and delayed growth in the west central area. 
Fields that were set back by the weather made good re- 
covery. A combination of heavy rains and strong winds in 
April hurt the crop in the west and northern areas, 
lowering yields. 

Harvest continued into July in both the north and 
west. Harvest continued active in July but volume was 
below normal. The season was over in all areas by the end 
of July.

OTHER CROPS 
1983-84 



Cantaloups are grown in Florida primarily in the 
spring and summer in the southwest and north central 
areas. Much of the production 1s sold through roadside 
stands and local markets. The peak harvest period 1s 
normally May and June. Harvest begins 1n the southwest 
and progresses northward seasonally. Some cantaloups also 
are grown during the fall months in the southwest and 
west central areas. Acreage continues at a relatively low 
level. However, this crop 1s not part of the regular 
program for vegetables and melons. Researchers continue 
to work toward developing new varieties that will be 
better adapted to Florida's soils and climate. There 
appears to be some promise that acreage may expand 1n the 
future. 

Cauliflower is grown in the Zellwood, Hillsborough- 
Manatee, and Everglades areas. Acreage increased from a 
year earlier. Supplies are available from December to 
April. At the present time statistics are not available 
for publication. Shipment Information is recorded by 
Market News Service. In the 1983-84 season there were 74 
thousand cwt (391 thousand 22-pound cartons) shipped out 
of the State compared with 86 thousand cwt shipped the 
previous season. 

Tropical vegetable production during the 1983-84 
season decreased from the previous year primarily because 
of lower yields. The December freeze was a contributing 
factor to the lower production. Acreage harvested was up 
1 percent from the previous year. By far the majority of 
the acreage is grown in Dade County. Commercial produc- 
tion began 1n the early 60' s. Tropical vegetables is a 
colloquial expression applied to certain vegetables eaten 
primarily by those of Latin American and Caribbean ori- 
gin. The most common name for each crop followed by the 
scientific name is listed below. Other common terms for 
various vegetables are shown in parentheses. The crops 
consist primarily of boniato-Ipomea batata (sweet 
potato); calabaza-Cucurbita (pumpkin); malanga-Xanthosoma 
caracu or Colocasia esculenta (dasheen, vautia); and 
cassava-Manihot esculenta (crantz, yucca, topioca). The 
bom'ato, Calabaza, and Malanga constitute the bulk of the 
production. The Dade County Agricultural Extension Ser- 
vice reported 11,000 acres of tropical vegetables planted 
1n the 1983 calendar year. Peak production of malanga 
occurs 1n February through April. Efforts are being made 
to provide more even supplies throughout the year. Avail- 
able land continues to be a limiting factor for all 
agricultural production 1n Dade County. New varieties of 
calabaza are being brought in from Columbia, South 



America to select those that do best 1n south Florida. 
Miami is an Important point of consumption for the 
Florida production. Also, considerable amounts are con- 
sumed in the Tampa Bay area. The supplies shipped out of 
State are primarily for the New York City and Phila- 
delphia areas. 

Col lard, turnip, mustard , and other greens are grown 
throughout the State and centered around large population 
areas and 1n the muck soils of the Everglades and Zell- 
wood areas. Good volume 1s available from November 
through March. Shipments totaled 75 thousand cwt during 
the 1983-84 season, 33 thousand cwt more than a year 
earlier. 

Okra is grown in many areas of the State during the 
warm season of the year. However, Dade County produces 
okra for local use as well as for shipments to other 
States. Peak production takes place 1n May and June with 
a good supply in October and November. 

Green onions and leeks are produced in the north 
central area. Supplies are marketed primarily for local 
use »at roadside stands and markets. There are several 
large producers who ship to other States. Supplies of dry 
onions are limited. Most of the dry onions are produced 
in southern and west central areas of the State. 

Parsley is available in both the curley and plain 
types. The bulk of the commercial volume shipped to other 
States is produced in the Everglades and Zellwood areas. 
Light supplies sold for local use are available from the 
Sarasota, Lake Placid, and other areas. 

Southern peas are grown primarily in the northwest, 
west central, and Everglades areas of Florida. Dade 
County also produces a considerable amount of southern 
peas. Light supplies are available from September through 
December. Heavy movement occurs in May and June, especi- 
ally in northwest Florida. A high percentage of the crop 
1s utilized for processing. Good supplies are sold 
through local markets for fresh use. Market News Service 
shipment statistics for out-of-State markets show 33 
thousand cwt for fresh market during the 1983-84 season. 

Watercress is available the year around. The major 
source of supply is the Oviedo area. Most of the produc- 
tion is shipped to northern and eastern markets 1n the 
United States. A limited supply is available from local 
State farmers markets, especially the Sanford market.
